Craft trials

Standard

Time for something new:

I tried the other day to paint a stone.

It was a very porous stone.

This is my result.

Stone

It was rather hard, I’m not so good in drawing so this will be my only one.

It looks nice in the garden, I varnished it to weatherproof it.

I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought,

so I’ll stick to the crafts I do better and enjoy more.

Like knitting  a little fragrance pouch for example.

It is good to try different crafts out.

One way to find out what you truly enjoy.

Don’t be so set on your ways that you can’t grow.”

More craft with shells

Standard

While sorting I find all different things.

Using some imagination I can make something new out of it.

I had a small tray which had once candles on it.

The candles are gone, the tray remained.

The wonderful shells, received from my sister from an exotic holiday, I had displayed on a plate.

My idea was to make a wall hanging out of it.

So I filled the tray with PVA glue,

arranged the shells as I liked, then carefully sprinkled sand in between.

Once this was dry, I glued the last shells on the top.

Now all dry and I have a new picture.

 

It will go nicely in the bathroom and gives this holiday feeling.

When you find odd bits and bobs why not

recycle and make something new out of it.

It is fun to create your own ideas.

Best Cat Nap Places

Standard

Dear wonderful Reader,

Thomas here,

in between my naps a quick post.

I found new places for excellent cat naps.

First, a wonderful basket, I jumped in as soon it was empty.

Second , my mum’s drawer on her Computer desk.

I thought I better look up for a proper picture.

otherwise I just relax on the bin, the sun makes it warm.

All three really comfy places.

Try them out in your house, dear fellow feline friends.

Psst… don’t tell your owner you got the tips from me.

Have a purrfect nap on your favourite place. 

Kitchen Capers and my Primula

Standard

Liz from Leaping life blog inspired me with her Kitchen Capers.

Liz made her own loaf of bread.

I was itching to make my own bread too.

Looking up James Morton on you tube

I found an easy recipe – a mug bread.

 

 

The result was fantastic,

and half the bread was gone within minutes.

Thank you Liz for your yummy post,

I will certainly do it for next weekend again

as we were all so impressed.

 

My Primula was very busy making more flowers.

Look at the difference from my last post here.

Fantastic Display – 100 Years of RAF

Standard

To commemorate 100 years of the RAF – Royal Air Force

The RAF sent 100 Aircraft to Buckingham Palace.

My house was on the flight path and I saw most of the Aircrafts flying over.

It was a fantastic display.

My first video shows the number 100 in planes

 

The second one are the famous Red arrows.

I felt very lucky to have seen some myself!

Here is the whole video at Buckingham Palace as recorded by the BBC.
